Try adding some walnuts (if not allergic) for extra protein. They sure are a treat. Too bad my kids only like chocolate chip cookies. Once in a while I'll ground up some oats and/or add white whole wheat flour to their cookie dough. They can never tell the difference that they're having something good for them.

Auntieshelly, long time no see! And nope, this was my first crack at making the cookies, I was sort of experimenting. I think they would freeze beautifully though.

Dina, glad they worked out for you. I think craisins would be expecially yummy in these. No nuts for us as there are too many allergies in the family darn it, but I think that would be awesome too.

Since these cookies are so dense, I think I would be careful about adding stuff like flax without lowering the amount of oatmeal. The oatmeal was my "fiber content" so I think straight subbing of 1/2 cup oats for flax would work well.

I kind of over did the nutmeg last time. Definitely not more than a tsp needed. And I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top to pretty them up and it really perked them up.

Yes. I love craisins too and at least Amanda likes them out of my family. I found this recipe that looks so yummy and you can use your extra apples for it. Enjoy! Cranberry-Orange-Nut Cookies - Eating Well I know...leave the walnuts out.

Yum - both of these look wonderful! Now that school is back in session, I am back in the car alot during the day. I like having something healthy to munch on between schools.
Thank you for sharing!
